Health officials urge nursing homes, hospitals, schools and restaurants to toss out containers of peanut butter.
This amid a salmonella outbreak that has sickened more than 400 people nationwide, including 9 here in Colorado and 1 in El Paso County.
The recalled peanut butter is distributed by King Nut Companies of Solon, Ohio.
It was supplied only through food service providers and wasn’t sold directly to consumers.
Officials announced they had found a match between samples from a King Nut container and the strains of salmonella bacteria making people sick across the country.
But King Nut is questioning the finding.
The company says it only distributes to seven states and can’t be the source of the outbreak.
